For V8 engine, it is very similar in concept in belts layout, see this diagram that I just prepared for you folks with V8 engine. When combined above link and this picture, V8 folks should be able to do cooling overhaul themselves

One note on the picture: V-8s built after September 1998 have a 3d roller outside between the power steering and alternator pulleys. I'm in the process of pricing and ordering parts for a complete (front) overhaul of the cooling system next weekend after discovering a small leak around the expansion tank top.
